Quinte Conservation is trained and licensed to deliver this copyrighted watershed education 'science to art' program. Stream of Dreams was started in 2000 in British Columbia by Louise Towell and Joan Carne. They educated children about their local creek, Byrne Creek, that had been seriously degraded. Since that first Stream of Dreams mural was installed there have been over 81,500 participants in three provinces and one USA state.

Quinte Conservation began offering the program in October 2008 with their first mural at Queen Victoria School in Belleville. The program consists of an interactive one hour workshop on the life and function of watersheds followed by an art workshop in which students envision their dream for our watersheds and paint it on a ‘dream fish'. Dream fish are later installed with hundreds others in a "Stream of Dreams" mural on a highly visible chain link fence in their community.
